Former President, Chief Olusegun Obasanjo, Tuesday, disclosed that he has uncovered another plot by the Presidency to hand over to the Nigerian military if it loses the coming presidential  election.

Obasanjo said this alleged plot would undermine the integrity of Nigeria among the comity of nations.

He stated this while hosting the South-West women of the All Progressives Congress (APC) led by the wife of the party’s presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari, Hajia Aisha Buhari.

Obasanjo had recently warned against introduction of Interim National Government by the Presidency which he said could plunge the country into chaos  like the former President of Cote d’l voire , Laurent Gbagbo who refused to hand over after he lost the election  did.

He said he was happy that Nigeria had gone beyond the rumour of Interim National Government, saying that,  he  hopes  the country will also survive the rumour of handing over to the military.

He explained that the international community, especially the African Union would not  accommodate or recognise any government that emerges  without the constitution of the country.
